Dear Mr. Richard,
It is with great enthusiasm that I submit my resume for the position of Recruiter, as I think my skill set would be a great fit for working with you and your team as you recruit candidates based upon the clientâ€™s staffing needs.
A few reasons that demonstrate how I would be an asset to RD Worldwide Inc.:
1. I am an experienced Project Manager and was responsible for interviewing, hiring, and managing a team of people of my own. I understand the importance of finding the right person for a position and how itâ€™s a meaningful decision for both the hiring manager and the potential candidate. I love collaborating as part of a team while at the same time I’m very self-directed, enjoy working independently, and pride myself on meeting deadlines.
2. I have years of experience working with vendors in various types of industries, including woodworking factories, stainless steel fabricators, stone quarries and fabricators, and glass manufacturing. I love working with people and building honest, productive relationships to work toward a common goal.
3. I understand the recruiting process of marketing jobs that entice the right candidates, the diligence required in staying connected with potential candidates and hiring managers, the importance of effective communication and honesty, and the value that a competent recruiter can provide for
As youâ€™ll see on the attached resume, I worked at Apple for 7 years (2 years remotely) on their Retail Development team, playing an integral role in establishing vendor relationships and sourcing strategies, being the main communication/marketing contact for internal departments and outside inquiries, and developing the personnel structure for our department as it grew. The opportunity to be a part of the department from the beginning (prior to opening any retail stores) allowed me to do everything from hiring and managing project coordinators to creating presentations for the executive team. These varied experiences led me to building a reputation for finding solutions, effectively communicating expectations, and motivating others to believe in their abilities to achieve those expectations.
Since leaving Apple, I’ve written articles for The Language Educator and have been very involved in my kidsâ€™ school as a board member for the PTA planning and executing projects and events. My combination of relationship and listening skills, ability to communicate effectively, attention to detail, and willingness to learn would be a great fit for recruiting and hiring the right candidates for your clientsâ€™ needs.
Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
